Thun gave his name to the lake...which you will have understood bears the same name: Lake Thun. Popular with the inhabitants of Bern who come to spend relaxing weekends not far from the Swiss capital. Thun is one of Switzerland's best hidden gems with Spiez just a short drive away.
Do you speak a little German? That's perfect, it's the official language in Thun, although the language spoken is more of an Alemannic Swiss German dialect,... anyway Thun is cosmopolitan and you'll probably make yourself understood as well in German, English, French or Italian.
For walks or bike rides along the lake, mountain biking, water or winter activities or for a gastronomy & wellness stay, Thun is a destination made for lovers of nature, wide open spaces and well-being.
How to get there: Book your flights to Bern Airport (30 min by car, 20 min by public transport).
